Common sense is always in style and never goes out of season. Fads come and go, but the values developed over centuries that built the most successful country in history are as applicable and beneficial today as ever.

Navigating Life's Journey: Common Sense in Uncommon Times includes stories of time-proven principles that will restore your confidence in your beliefs, encourage you to defend them, and inspire you to teach your sacred values to your loved ones.

Businessman, motivational speaker, and multi-award winning author Richard V. Battle weaves his advice with wisdom, humor, and real-life experiences. He encourages adults settled into life and young adults just starting out in it to achieve their life's purpose without taking themselves too seriously.
